Recently, a dear friend and colleague and I set out to change our corner of the world by partnering on a business venture you have come to know as LIFEWORKS. We started our adventure by holding a workshop in October, 2015 which was fun to plan and develop, attendees loved it and we thought – we can do this, we can start our own business, have more fun than we do working alone and away we went!
By November 2015, we had hired a business coach, had our name, logo, vision and strategy and we started to roll out – it was all so exciting and inspiring. I was happy and felt fearless, nothing could stop us. We were on a serious path – I don’t recall a time when I was more productive than I was then, which made it all so crushing when the bottom fell out in January of 2016. By the end of February, my partner realized, with deep regret, this just wasn’t working for her, and LIFEWORKS, as we had created it, was done.
